I recently purchased 3 grams of a standardized 5:1 extract of Kanna (Sceletium Tortuosum). It looks a lot like the powdered Kratom that I bought from a different vendor but seems to have a distinctly different smell. So I'm kinda curious to try this today/tonight but I'm not sure how much of the 3 grams to use and I'm not sure how to prepare it. Do I just boil and strain it to make a tea or is there a better way? Would I have been better off just waiting and getting a kanna plant?
Yeah, I just read a report on erowid. The guy said that he used 500mg but his wasn't an extract. So I was figuring on only 100mg but that would only bring about threshold effects it seems. So, yes, I think you're right. Probably about 1/4 gram should be good.
Did you have it in powder form though? I can't imagine chewing this stuff for 20 minutes and then swallowing everything would be a pleasant experience. I tried mixing some powdered kratom in with a small amount of iced tea once but it stuck in my throat as it went down.
Here's my three options that I'm considering:
a) Boil with a small amount of water and strain to make tea b) Encapsulate c) Mix in with some yogurt
Would one of these options be better than the others? I've read that you can smoke it too but I don't really want to do that.
Ya when I had kanna I would just take a pinch of it and chew it for a few minutes. The stuff I had was ground up and still had spines and stuff in it, I'm sure the extract will be even easier to hold in your mouth. It doesn't taste too bad either, I actually liked it a bit. Definitely don't snort it whatever you do!!!
100 mg didnt do anything for me on plain Kanna. 1 gram was good. also I chew on the material and swallow the juices and spit it out in about 20 minutes. but for 5x try a fifth of a gram to a quarter gram.
I would like to know how much of this you take. It typically just arrived in a baggy labelled 'sceletium 10x'.
I'm not after recreational doses. I want to use this for its theraputic potential. So if I was to buy the tabs and they were 300mg in dose... how much of this 10x extract should I take to be in similar range? It would be great if it could replace my SSRI.
Obviously I wish i bought the tabs now.. I just heard good experiences from those who buy from a certain vendor and they only sell the extract. Figured I may as well buy something that is actually going to work.
